“The most significant characteristic I learned at the Music Clubhouse was perseverance. This project has taken two years so far and I’ve had to work through creative differences with band members all while working and going to school… I learned how to deal with all of these situations at the Music Clubhouse because it was basically the same.”
Nearly 10 years ago at the Lawrence Music Clubhouse, five teens started learning music and performing together. Those same musicians now make up a five-piece Alternative/Progressive rock band called The Nine Choirs that seeks to give fans a unique interactive experience by pairing a comic book series with their original music.
Band members Eddy (Guitar/Lead vocals), Jacob (guitar), Gabriel (bass), Victor (drums), and Abimael (keys) established their friendship at the Lawrence Music Clubhouse back in 2006. Their friendship continues to be the foundation of their creative energy. And even now, despite their busy schedules that include work and college, these Music Clubhouse Alumni regularly find time to return to the Music Clubhouse to mentor young participants.
“The most significant characteristic I learned at the Music Clubhouse was perseverance,” said band member Eddy. “This project has taken two years so far, and I’ve had to work through creative differences with band members all while working and going to school. I learned how to deal with all of these situations at the Music Clubhouse because it was basically the same there.”
The Nine Choirs was established two years ago by Eddy, Jacob, and friend, Evan, who started the collaboration together by writing an original fantasy story. In the spirit of this creative beginning, the band plans to engage its audience by combining original music, lyrics, and performances with a supplemental comic book series. Fans will have an interactive experience, as the music is based on the characters and storyline described in the books.
The Nine Choirs band members are finishing their debut EP and are currently working on their second album. Their next step is to complete the original comic book series, play more shows, and revolutionize how music fans listen to and experience music.
